I think that's the point, you need to change and customize it one by one to your needs.
I usually change my reading pane to off on the inbox with small preview on new emails and "ON" in sent items to enhanced the search function. :)

Hello !

Have you tried starting Outlook using "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office11\OUTLOOK.EXE" /nopreview ?

This shoudl disable the reading pane completely.

This registry is nothing but a group policy that can be applied on 1 machne as well 10000000000000000000 machines.

This has helped me to disable the preview pane for the entire outlook. I do not know if you are doing something incorrect.

Do not try for 11.0 as 11.0 is for Outlook 2003 and not outlook 2007. The registry key has worked for everyone and it should work for you as well.

OK....I am attaching a registry key for you. Please download this registry key and double click it. When asked to install say 'YES'. This should resolve all your issues.
